youll be fine. just set the gains to where ya want it.

edit: imo its better to have a lil extra power than too little.

A 100 x 2 amp would work great. Over powering speakers a little never hurt anything. In fact, they may sound better than if you put a 75x2 on them. :)

There's no such thing as too much power on tap as you can always modulate the output to suit your current needs ...

With an amplifier, this is done using the gains ...
With an engine, this is done using the gas pedal ...
